Garrard has surgery to repair injured finger
JACKSONVILLE, FLA. (AP) - Jaguars quarterback David Garrard has undergone surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right middle finger.
Garrard had surgery Thursday at Baptist Orthopaedic Surgery Center in Jacksonville. Garrard posted a picture of himself wearing a sling and cast on Twitter following the outpatient procedure. Garrard tweeted "Surgery went great. Now for the recovery!"
Team spokesman Dan Edwards says Garrard had surgery to repair a tendon disruption and a ligament rupture. The Jaguars placed the quarterback on injured reserve Thursday.
Garrard said Wednesday that rehabilitation is expected to take two months. He slammed his hand into Indianapolis defensive end Dwight Freeney's helmet on Dec. 19. X-rays were negative, and Garrard insisted his finger was just jammed. But he re-injured it during Sunday's 20-17 overtime loss to Washington.
Jacksonville promoted linebacker Alvin Bowen off the practice squad to take Garrard's spot on the roster.
